how are we supposed to svn checkout thirdparty?

http://viewvc.scilab.org/bin/cgi/viewvc.cgi/trunk/Dev-Tools/ now requires authorization, the nightly build tgz is overbloated including the whole jdk, and the instructions for anonymous svn checkout of the relevant section disappeared from the site.

This part of ViewVC has always required authorization. But
http://viewvc.scilab.org/bin/cgi/viewvc.cgi/trunk/Dev-Tools/SE/Prerequirements 
can be browsed without any authorization.

Which version are you talking about ? The trunk nightly builds only
seems to include the JRE (located in scilab-SE-trunk-<rev>/thirdparty/java)

Some packages are missing when I compile Scilab console module. Where
can I find them ?

All needed packages to compile Scilab under Linux can be found in Scilab
SVN pre-requirements directory:
[$SHELL] mkdir Prerequirements
[$SHELL] cd Prerequirements
[$SHELL] svn co --username anonymous --password Scilab
svn://svn.scilab.org/scilab/trunk/Dev-Tools/SE/Prerequirements/Linux/

and how do you think that one is supposed to find it?

whatever - don't you find that there is something sick in having to
download 129MB just because rosetta changed name?

what "Prerequirements"? jre, ant, jogl, ... can be more conveniently
installed with yum, at least with my distro. I'm talking of
SCI/thirdparty/. I had is svn-tagged on another installation, I just
don't see why I should make so many efforts for reproducing it
elsewhere.

All Scilab under Linux is using the packages provided by/on the system
The Prerequirements is to make it easier for users and having reference
versions.

If you are talking about the binary distributed version, we are
providing a Scilab for dummy (ie work out of the box) but as you know,
we are also helping/doing packages for Linux distribution to be
integrated in their repositories.

We had some discussions here about doing a binary with the JRE and an
other one without the JRE included but I don't know if we are going to
do it or not.
